Ohio African-American Leaders Report on State of Black Ohio

Ohio Governor Bob Taft delivers his final "State of the State" address today. He'll address a joint session of the Ohio Legislature, justices of the Ohio Supreme Court and members of his cabinet.

Taft's talk is expected to include remarks about job losses in the auto industry, about education, and about predatory lending. But, African-American legislators say Taft's address isn't the last word about issues that concern Ohioans. Members of the Ohio legislative black caucus say Ohioans should listen to the Governor's speech to see what he leaves out.
